Etsy is a global marketplace, but thousands of those items are made and sold right around the corner from you. “For hundreds of years British arts and crafts have inspired people around the world, and contemporary crafts are no exception. Whether traditional or contemporary, UK crafts have always been known for their excellence and unique style. And some of the best of those crafts can be found here on Etsy!” says Ilene from Corydora.
With great talent next door, it makes loads of sense to buy within the UK. “Shopping local means you get your items quicker, and can be more environmentally friendly than having something posted halfway round the world to you. But more than that, you are supporting crafters in your local area, and helping them to have a better life and to grow their business,” says Alice from TheSequinnedSheep.
With these thoughts in mind, a group of sellers in the UK have banded together to put on a special sale. Etsy’s UK & Ireland Promo Team is running a sale during the month of March to offer free P&P within the UK.
Use the coupon code FREEMARCH13 in any participating shops for free P&P within the UK.

Stefania from Djemiladesign says, “When I applied to this team, I knew I was applying to a community of people like me ready to promote others and being promoted. Also, as an inexperienced seller it is great to find the support and advice of more mature sellers.”
